Seeing the materials of life.
I always knew I should’ve paid closer attention in my science classes. If I’d applied myself, I could’ve spent my career determining whether cats can be both a solid and
Including the zero honored this year, there have been just 17 in the history of the prizes. Why so terribly few?
Jenny Rohn: Restricting Nobel prizes to three individuals has always been problematic, and increasingly glosses over the contributions of everyday scientists
Just three men won this year’s Nobel Prize in Physics, but there were thousands of people involved in the gravitational wave discovery, including a Canadian team of astrophysicists.
Jacques Dubochet, Joachim Frank and Richard Henderson receive £825,000 prize for developing method for generating 3D images of life-building structures
The study provides the pertinent regional and historical geology of the tunnel site and immediate surroundings as well as data on the index properties and seismic velocities of the material through which the tunnel passes. The tunnel, located in the discontinuous permafrost zone, is discussed with emphasis on bedrock, gravel, silt, ground ice, and chemical gradient. A study of the stratigraphy of the section reveals a record of the past climatic history of the area, based on the structure and distribution of the ice wedges, chemical gradients, sedimentary structures, radiocarbon dates, and the lithology of the material exposed along the tunnel section and vertical ventilation shaft. Two recognizable unconformities appear in the section. The large size of the wedges suggests that depositional rates were fairly slow during the period of wedge development. It can also be concluded that within the last 30,000 yr a minimum of 30 ft of silt was deposited, most of which is Wisconsin age.
